Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: acoustic vs visual + acoustic?

Diane, all is good, but you may need to put this one in your pipe and smoke it. This one really got the newbie smokin'

All of my friends come to see me last night
I was laying in my bed and dying
Annie Beauneu from Saint Angel
say "the weather down here so fine"

Just then the wind
came squalling through the door
but who can
the weather command?
Just want to have
a little peace to die
and a friend or two
I love at hand

Fever roll up to a hundred and five
Roll on up
gonna roll back down
One more day
I find myself alive
tomorrow
maybe go
beneath the ground

See here how everything
lead up to this day
and it's just like
any other day
that's ever been
Sun goin up
and then the
sun it goin down
Shine through my window and
my friends they come around
come around
come around

People may know but
the people don't care
that a man could be
as poor as me...
"Take a look at poor Peter
he's lyin in pain
now let's go run
and see"

Run and see
hey, hey,
run and see

This is what is frustrating to me in this forum. I have no idea what the meaning of your reply is. I love the song, though.

Fairly new to all this myself, I can only suggest that any indistinct meaning in his reply should be overlooked in favor of the great truth to which he speaks....he is lying in pain.

That must be it - people are just free associating and I'm trying to make it all make sense.
I actually thought of "See here how everything lead up to this day, and it's just like any other day that's ever been Sun going up and then the sun going down Shine through my window and my friends they come around" for favorite lyrics and thought no, too morbid. I like all the death songs.

I like the death/suicide/murder ballad songs too. Here is a cool thread from a while back on that topic.

Death is your wish apparently... I always viewed it as a Black Peter. AT EASE SAILOR

If you all need some pain >
